  • Who' Going

    Tom Katis

    The Commander

    Susi Mai

    Host / Kite Caddy

    Susi was born in Germany to parents who were passionate windsurfers. When she was 5 years old her family moved to the Dominican Republic to pursue their love of adventure and great beaches. There, Susi grew up on the island, living the carefree life of a beach girl. When she was a teenager, she discovered her life’s passion: kiteboarding. After only 8 months of practicing, to everyone’s surprise, she placed 2nd in her first international PKRA competition.


    From that point on, her career in kiteboarding exploded, winning three consecutive "Red Bull King of the Air" in Maui, considered one of the most prestigious events in the sport.


    Today, Susi is considered one of the most inspirational and decorated female kiteboarders in the world. Her deep passion for growing sport has manifested into a number of creative, innovative and impactful projects, including her previous gig at MaiTai Globalt (dubbed by the media as the “anti-conference” and likened to the prestigious TED conferences).


    She’s also designed and developed the first ever line line of kiteboarding equipment – just for girls – setting the scene for a female gear market.


    When Susi’s not traveling around the world chasing the perfect wind, competing professionally, and striving to get the number of girls to outnumber boys on the water, she calls the Dominican Republic home, where she has a dog, a closet and her family.
